Knitting in the rain

Blogging has been quite frustrating this summer as my hotspot device for the internet seems to eat the gigs I am allowed. It is expensive and slow and I suppose I am spoiled with unlimited internet in Florida. So I have been on sharing on Facebook which I can do from my phone. And I have been knitting as I have watched my little garden  NOT thrive. 

These zinnias should have been from my garden but the Japanese beetles live in that pot.

We stopped at our favorite farm stand for tomatoes and fresh corn and they had big bunches of flowers for sale and I bought a bouquet of zinnias. They cheered me right up!

Aren't the colors just glorious?

Rainy days are good for knitting. I finished two projects this past week.

Now I shall go and knit and watch the rain. Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Of course, it is raining here also, Carol. I am cleaning the kitchen. No, really, I am! How frustrating to not have the access that you want at your summer place. I've certainly missed having you post.

Your knitting is beautiful. Is the blue a shawl?

The zinnias would make a miser grin. Those truly are some of the most colorful I've seen.

We really do get spoiled by unlimited internet, don't we? Sorry your time is so limited but your knitting is beautiful!

I've never seen such lovely colours of zinnias! I am going to start planning for next spring and will add zinnias to the top of my list. I've grown them before and loved them. Your knitted work is amazing! You must have so much patience!

Beautiful zinnias. They are one of my favorites, too. I read your bio and you like to read novels. What are you reading now? So fun visiting. Best wishes, Linda
